Lawrence Junior/Senior High School Reviews

As much as I loved going to small school where everyone knew each other l there wasn’t much opportunity as far as academics and such go. We had no option to raise or GPA other than with dual enrollment classes and if we did that we would miss out on other opportunities such as the Van Buren Tech Center which has helped me so much along the way. We also never seem to keep a teacher very long. Since I started at the Jr/Sr high I have lost about 7 teachers and are on our 3rd principal. One of my main concerns about this school is the lack of communication among the employees and students throughout the school. Nobody ever seems to be on the right page till about a week after the event has happened. Other than those few things I enjoyed my time at Lawrence jr/sr High and thank all the teachers and staff for getting me to where I am today.

First of all, every teacher at Lawrence is kind, caring and helpful to their students. The teachers are supportive of their students and will put forth a big effort to help them succeed. I think things are great at Lawrence but the attendance policy is hard to deal with. With 4 absences giving you a detention it makes no sense to further push a kid that hasn't shown up to not let them come back to class to learn. But overall Lawrence is a great school with amazing staff!
At Lawrence I liked to see how everyone knew everyone else. That is because it is such a small school, but because its a small school they haven't had the chance to create an actual STEM program which I think they would majorly benefit from. Not only do they need a STEM program but they also need to improve the quality of the school lunches and also the administration. Almost all of the teachers are excellent in preparing you for not only college and life with the limited resources are available.
